We own land! Give us money!
Stewart Baseley, HBF Executive Chairman, said today: â€œThis report reveals the extent of our housing crisis and the challenge faced by todayâ€™s young people. Unlike previous generations that took home ownership for granted, todayâ€™s generation have a mountain to climb if they wish to own their own home. We are creating a locked out generation. â€œHowever, there is some light at the end of the tunnel and there are now several ways for people to buy with a more normal deposit. Government backed schemes such as Newbuy are offering real options for people looking to buy â€“ or move home â€“ and we are seeing more and more take advantage.â€
